Is this the most complicated forum ever?!

Post by tigerssteve » Sun Dec 02, 2018 8:51 am

I'm new to the Tiger's forum, but use various others. I accept that I'm old and a bit of a Luddite but heck it's complicated to use! Threads are impossible to follow. Posts are endlessly repeated. I can never decide who said what or how to reply. Sorry guys but my life isn't going to be long enough to use something this hard to navigate.

...I have made several comments to the mods in regards to traversing this forum but have not received a reply after some months. Surely a pointer to this Technical Forum would have been appreciated but to not acknowledge my concerns seems to be a feature of this site.
I have asked previously if the fans forum could be set up so any new post can be accessed should you leave and come back to a topic. The ability to pick up where you left is a great asset and I have to try to remember roughly where I was and having to re-read post to get to where I had left the conversation.
The layout is confusing and I feel claustrophobic. I use the Leicester Foxes Talk Forum and that is light years ahead of this Tigers forum and I feel there is no reason not to try to emulate what they have achieved.

Redstripeman,
Apologies but I have not seen your commetnts and agree at times it is difficult to follow a thread. We try our best to keep topics in one thread but there are some which are slightly different and have other discussions.
Please send a PM to me if you have any concerns and a response will be provided.

Six months in and no clearer. I find it impossible to follow a thread and discern who said what and when. The original post gets repeated so often that it's hard to remember where the neck you started. I'm sure you guys work hard at this, for probably no reward, so I feel mean saying it but, rather like the team, it needs sharpening up and better discipline.

I don't mean for this to sound patronising as it isn't meant that way but what do you mean by "don't know who said what and when"?

To find out who said something, their name is at the top with the date and time underneath.

Sent a PM to yourself, not too sure if it actually went as I browsed to find your name in the PM message tab but it did not add your name in the recipient box. I also typed your name in the box as another exercise but still not sure if that went as I could not see that it had been sent.
This is such a poor forum, messy and more convoluted than it needs to be.

No offence taken. That's all very well on a small issue but some are so long, with so many comments, with the original post repeated time after time followed by replies and responses to replies etc,etc,etc. It's clumsy, that's all.
